    What the ever-living shit? That's glorious.

    I do wish XCOM 2's story went into a little more detail about that Speaker guy. I remember first watching the first cutscene and thinking, "Oooh, is this our big baddie that's probably going to be a huge prick? Maybe even take some pointers from Handsome Jack with his whole, 'You're fithy...

    OOC X-COM Think Tank (part 4)

    I was actually just thinking today about how damage is handled in video games vs real life, and how when you step back and try to apply a video game scenario to real life and logic just falls apart. I was watching one of Odd's latest XCOM 2 videos and watching his Psi Op use Fuse. Like... a...

    Nope. I click on the icon with mouse. I only really use the hotkeys for numbers 1-4, because those are the keys my fingers can easily get to from WASD. The fact that it was so easily repeatable on that one save of mine was odd too. Like there's some specific scenario that causes it. I'll have...

    I mean it's possible, but the other incriminating thing is the lack of the usual "This will cause friendly fire. Are you sure?" warning.

    Yeah... that's what I'm thinking of doing next. Just enforce the whole "Only savescum for bullshit" policy. I have no quarrels with the idea of Ironman otherwise (in fact, I quite like it. No temptation to save scum when someone died to totally legit means), but the glitches, man. The glitches...

    Alright, that's it. I don't think I'm playing Ironman mode until XCOM 2 gets some of its wacky glitches sorted out. Has anyone else gotten the glitch yet where with a grenadier as you're trying to select a grenade to throw instead of entering the usual grenade aiming interface your grenadier...

    I probably would if I could, but Steam doesn't work like that. :p

    I played it back in Early Access, but I've yet to play it since its full release. XCOM 2's been too addictive and has been overpowering my desire to play it. :p

    If you don't change her nickname to "Sanic," then I'm going to be disappointed in you.

    What in the crud? I've had my fair share of XCOM glitches, but not anything as pronounced as that! Maybe she's secretly Sonic the Hedgehog and she wanted to show off how she could get to the spot you ordered her to by first making an entire lap around the world. You were just witnessing the...

    So I just had it where [the scanning time for some supplies was -1 days]. I also had a soldier who would recover in -1 days... Ookaay... I also just had the highest ranking unit I had (a gunslinger with 29 kills to her name) get taken down in a single hit by a melee crit from a muton that...

    Yeah, that's one of the things I love about Souls games. The level design and various details of the game reward paying close attention so much. It feels super satisfying to find a secret or learn a new way to take on a group of enemies based on clues in the environment.

    OOC X-COM Think Tank (part 4)

    I can definitely sympathize. However, I'm the type of of person that's patient and very difficult to anger. Those traits are pretty essential to not tearing yourself apart when playing Dark Souls or BloodBorne. :p The one trait of mine that's not very conducive to Dark Souls play, however, is...
